Chinese Medicine is also Effective in Controlling Blood Fat

Chen Jianhong, attending physician of the Chinese Medicine Department in Linsen Chinese Medicine Branch of Taipei City Hospital, says in case of three highs (high blood pressure, fat and sugar), if the effects of adjusting daily life, changing dietary habits and getting more exercise is insufficient, you may have to take medicine to control blood pressure, cholesterol, fat, sugar, etc.

Chen Jianhong says, besides using Western medicine, Chinese Medicine also works pretty well in controlling blood fat, reducing low-density lipoproteins and triglyceride, and increasing high-density lipoproteins. There are different dosage forms for you to choose, which can also take into consideration other symptoms of the patients for systematic symptom control and health improvement.

Miss Wang, a sixty-year-old woman who took some Western medicine due to hyperlipidemia disease which always resurged when the drug intake was stopped, turned to Chinese Medicine for treatment. After taking traditional Chinese medicine for three months, her total cholesterol number was 181 mg/dL, low density lipoprotein 99 mg/dL, triglyceride 60 mg/dL and high density lipoprotein 65 mg/dL, all returning to normal and her shoulder-neck tension and stiffness have also been alleviated.

Chen Jianhong reminds such patients to pay attention to diet control, keep a regular lifestyle and exercise every day to avoid the rise of blood fat.
